Books & Books, 265 Aragon Ave, Coral Gables, Florida 33134

Join CasaCuba and Books & Books for this meeting of the Contemporary Cuban Literature Circle. 

About the book:
The Agüero Sisters. Reina and Constancia Agüero are Cuban sisters who have been estranged for thirty years. Reina--tall, darkly beautiful, and magnetically sexual--still lives in her homeland. Once a devoted daughter of la revolución, she now basks in the glow of her many admiring suitors, believing only in what she can grasp with her five senses. The pale and very petite Constancia lives in the United States, a beauty expert who sees miracles and portents wherever she looks. After she and her husband retire to Miami, she becomes haunted by the memory of her parents and the unexplained death of her beloved mother so long ago. Told in the stirring voices of their parents, their daughters, and themselves, The Agüero Sisters tells a mesmerizing story about the power of myth to mask, transform, and finally, reveal the truth--as two women move toward an uncertain, long awaited reunion.

Don’t miss this opportunity to meet fellow readers and delve into the literary world of contemporary Cuban literature! This event is free and open to the public.
